Treasury and the ATO Tax and Superannuation Protocols


The Treasury and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) are joint stewards of Australia’s tax system and some aspects of Australia's superannuation system. The Treasury and the ATO are committed to working collaboratively and continuously to provide the best possible advice to Government on issues affecting these systems, and the implementation of Government policy to meet the needs of the community who are the users of these systems.

The Treasury is a central policy agency and expected to anticipate and analyse policy issues with a whole of economy perspective, understand government and stakeholder circumstances and respond to changing events and directions. The ATO is the Government's principal revenue collection agency, and part of the Treasurer's portfolio. The ATO administers the tax and superannuation laws that are the subject of this Protocol.
